You can print Vanilla garments using any number of decoration techniques including transfer film, laser, DTG or mixed media designs. For maximum visual impact though, we recommend using sublimation. Here’s our guide to getting the perfect sublimation print every time… 


Sublimation Printing


BEFORE pressing any garment you should always optimise the printing surface by going over it with a lint roller to remove any dust particles. 



Because there are so many variables in creating a sublimation transfer, these are general guidelines only. ALWAYS TRY A TEST PRINT FIRST!

Sublimating onto polyester/cotton will give a more muted result than with 100% polyester. This works particularly well for vintage designs and for music merchandise.

For best results you should ALWAYS use premium quality sublimation ink and paper. Also ensure your heat press is giving even pressure and temperature right across the platen. 

We always recommend Xpres sublimation hardwareinks and papers.
